Obama’s Treachery and Republican Silence

ob6Reprinted from NRO Online.

Barack Obama deliberately set out to lose the war in Iraq, and he did. He defied the advice of his joint chiefs of staff to secure America’s formidable military presence and keep 20,000 troops in country, and left Iraq to its own devices and the tender mercies of Iran. In doing so, he betrayed every American and Iraqi who gave his life to create a free Iraq and keep it out of the clutches of the terrorists.

Iraq is now a war zone dominated by the terrorist forces of the Islamic State, whose rise Obama’s policies fostered. Both his secretaries of state praised the animal Bashar Assad as a “reformer” and a man of “peace,” helping him to thwart his domestic opposition. The Islamic State was born out of the Syrian chaos that ensued.

Far worse was Obama’s open support for America’s mortal enemy, the Muslim Brotherhood, spawner of al-Qaeda and Hamas. During the “Arab Spring,” Obama essentially put America’s weight behind the legitimization of this murderous organization that had been outlawed for 40 years for its assassinations and conspiracies against the Egyptian regime. Secretary of State Clinton gave totally unfounded assurances to the world that the Brotherhood was ready to become part of the democratic process and give up its 90-year holy war against infidels, Jews in particular but also — and explicitly — America. During the Brotherhood’s brief tenure as the government in Egypt Obama gave these genocidal zealots more than a billion dollars in American aid and F-16 fighter-bombers that could easily reach Israel’s major population centers, which for 60 years the Brotherhood had sworn to destroy.

By his feckless interventions in the Middle East, and his tacit support for the chief organization of Islam’s terror war against the West, Obama has set the Middle East on fire. All the violence in the crescent from Gaza to Iraq, including Hamas’s genocidal war against Israel, has been encouraged by Obama’s support for the Brotherhood and hostility toward the Jewish state.

Characteristic of this encouragement was his illegal intervention in Libya, which violated every principle that Obama and the Democrats invoked to attack President Bush and undermine America’s war against the Saddam regime and the terrorists in Iraq. Thanks to Obama, Libya is now in the hands of the terrorists and thousands of Libyans are fleeing to Tunisia and Egypt. Thanks to Obama, the Christian communities of Iraq, which date back to the time of Christ, are being slaughtered.

Because of Obama’s aversion to America’s role as a keeper of international peace, the tyrant Putin has been able to swallow Crimea and threaten the rest of Ukraine. Since his election in 2009, Obama’s policies have been responsible for the deaths of tens of thousands of people and will result in the deaths of tens of thousands more. Thanks to his efforts to destroy America’s borders, Americans may be included in this grim toll. Certainly, Americans are now threatened by terrorists as never before.

Where is the Republican opposition? Why are Republicans still treating Obama as though his were a normal presidency and not a national disgrace? Why are there no indictments of Obama for the carnage he has enabled?

There is one foreign policy area where Republicans have shown some fight: Benghazi. But the fight here has been over an inquiry — important in its own right, but not a political challenge to Obama’s efforts to sabotage and degrade the country he is supposed to lead.

We know the basic facts. Obama’s team was trying to monitor and recapture the weapons we had helped supply to Islamist militias in Libya. That was Ambassador Stevens’s mission. No security was provided because Stevens’s mission had to be secret and plausibly deniable in the middle of an election in which Obama was running on the cynical lie that the war on terror had been won. During the battle waged by American heroes against the terrorists’ assault in Benghazi, the president and his secretary of state went A.W.O.L. and left these brave Americans to die. Instead of honoring them and hunting down their killers, Obama then took off for a fundraiser in Las Vegas. This was surely the most shameful individual act by a president in the history of the White House.

Having abandoned these American heroes and their families, Obama and his minions then lied to the American people about the terrorist attack and used it as an occasion to defend the Prophet Mohammed in a U.N. address to the world. This series of acts showed Obama’s contempt for the American military, contempt for the American people, and sympathy for America’s enemies, an attitude that has been revealed over and over again.

When will Republicans gather the courage to start speaking truth to power?

    So true David Horowitz. We are a people of a once great nation. That has changed since the insolent and destructive Obama regime. It’s more than a Republican problem, it is a citizen responsibility to acknowledge the warning of our founding fathers; “The price of freedom is eternal vigilance.” We have failed to the extent that we “reap what we sow.”

    Only now others sow the sorrow. Iraqi children are beheaded and women are bled and enslaved. Men are tortured and hung on a cross for public display. All for the benefit of a self-appointed legacy — the will of one over the fate of many.

    Whether your article captures a spiritual revival of fundamental and constitutional rights is in question. The contempt for both is upon us by session.

      Peace through strength needs to become our mantra again with a conservative leadership. Real conservatives, that is, not the fakes that have weaseled into the government. The leftists have smeared the term so bad many people don’t even understand what a conservative really is anymore.

      • camp7

        I agree. Here in Alaska we have three strong conservative candidates running for the US Senate this coming primary. Any of them will help restore the leadership in Congress, as compared to one of our incumbent Senators who tows the weasels’ line with zombie like adherence.

        In my opinion, “leftists” are nothing more than quasi liberal statists who by nature befoul the intent of the constitution.

        “Peace through strength” makes more sense now than ever.

I cannot help that you would not have a conversation with people who do not share the same opinion as you. Forums are not an English class, but a venue where people express their opinions and correct English standards do not apply. Not the same as writing a book or a column for a newspaper.

  • Mladen_Andrijasevic

    What is really shocking is the almost indifference of the American public to the American president supporting the Muslim Brotherhood, an anti-American and anti-Semitic organization, and even more so Obama’s support for Hamas, the organization which in its Charter has Article 7 which reads:

    The Day of Judgement will not come about until Moslems fight the Jews (killing the Jews), when the Jew will hide behind stones and trees. The stones and trees will say O Moslems, O Abdulla, there is a Jew behind me, come and kill him.

    How is it that Americans do not realize that this is an abandonment of the basic values the US stands for?

    Houston, we have a problem – the US president sides with Hamas against Israel!

    • DB1954

      I agree with your first statement. The apparent indifference of the American public reflects, in my view, the ignorance that George Soros and Democratic Alliance have spread ever since 2008 at least. In short, a wild guess would be that maybe 3 to 5 percent of the American people know that Obama supports the Muslim Brotherhood, and even fewer know the details of that support or the fact that the MB has infiltrated our security apparatus at the highest levels.

      Bottom line: few if any know of the MB.

  • JR Kipling

    I disagree about describing Assad as being a repressive, cruel, corrupt, totalitarian dictator. While those words may be descriptive, there is one all important word left out and that is Bashar al Assad is necessary. Given the fundamental violence and instability and dysfunction of Islam which is the bedrock of that part of the world no other kind of leader can exist. The very very best that
    can happen is a figure like the Shah who uses state terror to curb the even greater terror of Islam itself. But nothing can thwart the will of Allah in the end
    and we saw what happened to the Shaw. No..leave Assad alone. And stop the insane Liberal schemes of saving helping, changing, toppling, reforming,
    or “saving” these countries. Until you can change the words of the Koran on every page of every copy that exists and do it quietly the need for Assads, or Saddams, or Ghadafis or Ibn Saud, will arise. Just leave these places alone. No technolog goes into these places and no people comes out of these places

    • http://libertyandculture.blogspot.com/ Jason P

      Facts are facts and Assad is as bad as you and David “describe.” Whether he is the lessor of evils is another question. He’s our enemy and an enemy of civilization. Islam, is a much bigger problem. The secular dictators are no friends of ours but are enemies of our main enemy: jihadi.

      The days of secular dictators are numbered. The Islamic Revival ultimately threatens their power. We may have hastened Mubarak and Ghadafi’s fall but the ease of their fall tells us the fragility of their rule. Assad is more vulnerable that previously imagined. With Iran and Russia’s help he may survive this round of jihadi insurrection.

      David is right that Obama takes the wrong side … but he is wrong if he thinks we can stop Muslims from embracing Islam. We have an enemy and we have to establish a deterrent to their aggression. Until we understand the enemy and their religious philosophy and until we accept the need to fight them by means appropriate to their barbarity, we will not be effective in establishing a deterrent.

      Our internal weakness is our greatest problem. We are not the country we once were.

      • wildjew

        “We may have hastened Mubarak and Ghadafi’s fall but the ease of their fall tells us the fragility of their rule….”

        You are right but don’t include me in the “we.” I did not demand Mubarak step down “immediately” in 2011 to make way for Obama’s Muslim Brotherhood jihadists; Obama did. I did not send or agree to send U.S. forces to help al-Qaeda of North Africa to murder Gaddafi; Obama did it. I did not agree to arm ISIS and other rebels in Syria. Robert Spencer has been warning for many months there are no good options in Syria but Obama chose to arm the jihadists who are flooding into Iraq. You are right, Assad is bad. But there can be worse. Why didn’t Obama arm the Kurds, our natural allies in Iraq? I am not hastening ISIS victory in Iraq. Obama is.

        • http://libertyandculture.blogspot.com/ Jason P

          Spencer also warned against nations-building in Iraq a decade ago (if you remember Jihad Watch back then). I don’t think Horowitz and Spencer are on the same page with regards to this matter.

          The problem with the Republicans is that they told us that Islam is just like Christianity and Iraqis have a love of freedom in their heart just like we do. Bush lied … about Islam. Now Republicans lost the trust of the voters on foreign policy.

          We need a new crop of Republicans that put America’s interest first, properly vilify Islam, repudiate the current “just war” nonsense, etc. In this culture that takes a brave individual.

          • wildjew

            You are so right. I wrote David Horowitz during the Bush years warning him that Bush’s lies about Israel (actually Bush betrayed Israel) and his lies Islam were killing us. The problem is, for too many Republicans (Karl Rove and others like him) politics is a sport or a game that is about winning by clever stratagems rather than doing what is right. Thus Michele Bachmann and others are trashed by fellow Republicans because they are warning about Muslim Brotherhood infiltration in the Obama regime. Bush (I voted for him in 2000) misled the American people about Islam for seven plus years after 9/11/2001. Is it any wonder Americans elected this dangerous Muslim-born president only seven years after Muslims attacked America?

          • http://libertyandculture.blogspot.com/ Jason P

            You are exactly right. I was going to use the same examples (Bush’s limitations and Bachmann trashing) but then my post would have been an article.

            Coming from a ghetto rat as yourself, we will take it as a compliment. When your democrat masters run out of other peoples money to buy your vote, your going to be sh*t out of luck, the gravy train that you have enjoyed since the 60′s is going o come to a screeching halt, your going to find that the rest of us won’t be so accommodating.

          • bigjulie

            I suppose Bush’s pronouncements could be termed “lies” but I believe they were made out of profound ignorance of what he was facing with Islam as a political force, powered by the Koran and the Hadith, both heavily spiced with Taquiya, which, I am sure, he had no knowledge or appreciation of. Brash and wildly self-confident, he powered forward only to realize, too late, that he had been “had” by the so-called “advisors” (Iraqis living in the US who had a desire to cash in on the future of a “democratic” Iraq once the US Forces had done all the dangerous and dirty work required for the victory, including the capture of Saddam)
            A “new crop of Republicans” is simply not going to hack it. Republican so-called leadership is so beholden to moneyed interests for Party support that they will never do anything to thwart the ends of those supplying the money. A major “end” is having a money-compliant leadership of the party, else the entities supplying the money lose control. This is the major reason Conservatives are having such a difficult time gaining ground. Those currently in power know that money will not buy their loyalties. Conservatives are motivated by principle, not money, and would therefore be difficult to “control”, unlike the current Republican “leadership” (Boehner, already known to have an irresistible desire for a lucrative lobbying position), McConnell, and Rove, whose only principle is “greed is good”! They all grovel in front of the “green” waved in front of their noses and will do what the “wavers” want done…principles be damned!

    • carpe diem 36

      i hope they keep fighting and I hope both sides win.

  • Douglas Mayfield

    That he and those he has appointed have wrecked American foreign policy and crippled our armed forces is no surprise.

    Obama is socialist and nihilist who has embraced the death worship that is Islam.

    He and his followers are committed to destroying freedom and individual rights wherever they fine them, both here in America and abroad.

    That is why in foreign policy, he has consistently embraced cheap vicious murdering tyrants such as Castro in Cuba, Chavez in Venezuela, and Putin in Russia and why he repeatedly snubbed or actively hamstrung our allies. His treatment of Israel is disgusting but is entirely consistent with his basic purpose.

    America has one hope, elect someone with courage and integrity to the office of the Presidency, but that requires that the Republicans nominate such an individual for President.

    Given the chronic evasion and outright cowardice with which elected Republicans go about representing us, I have my doubts.

The trouble is we should find Muslims who are willing to expunge the heinous parts of the Qur’an.

      is much more important than a failing president. If your GOVERNMENT
      is strong and capable, then you can always find the leader.

      This is why we need a patriotic president. Hopefully, by 2016, we would elect one. Also, what Russia needs to do is go back to the Yeltsin years. Yeltsin was a democrat and a Western ally, while his successor, Putin, is a neo-Communist. Too bad Yeltsin didn’t expel every Communist and neo-Communist from power in Russia. The neo-Communists needs to be told that their side has lost the Cold War and that they need to respect and support the West, since the West is clearly the force of good. Neo-Communists like Putin are sore losers.

      • DB1954

        Putin is behaving like a dictator because he is a dictator. Communism in the Soviet Union was a political system that wouldn’t be of benefit to Putin, so why do we just have to label him a “neo-communist”?

        If anyone deserves to be labeled a “neo-communist,” it’s Barack Obama, although I’d prefer to call him a Marxist.

    • Americana

      American foreign policy is subject to INTERNATIONAL AGREEMENTS. The Status of Forces agreement that was brokered by Pres. Bush that stated American forces would leave Iraq after a certain date was never revoked by the Iraqis. That is, in part, the fault of the Obama administration. for not being persuasive enough w/PM Nouri al Maliki, it was also the result of Iraqi arrogance and ignorance of how little battle-hardened the Iraqi armed forces were and are. This agreement failed to be negotiated to the our’ satisfaction because we didn’t want to subject American soldiers to Iraqi justice. How many soldiers would have fallen afoul of Iraqi justice? Unknown, but we made the bet and we lost the bet during Pres. Bush’s administration.

      NOTE THE DATE ON THE FOLLOWING STORY and the references to Pres. Bush and the election:

      Maliki Demands All U.S. Troops Pull Out by 2011

      By Amit R. PaleyWashington Post Foreign Service
      Tuesday, August 26, 2008

      BAGHDAD, Aug. 25 — Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki demanded a complete U.S. military withdrawal from Iraq by 2011 as he embarked Monday on an attempt to win support among Iraqi leaders for a draft security accord with the United States.

      Maliki’s comments appeared to be an attempt to extract further concessions from American officials, less than a week after both sides said they had agreed to remove all U.S. combat troops by the end of 2011, if the security situation remained relatively stable, but leave other American forces in place. The U.S. plan is to leave as many as 40,000 troops to continue to assist Iraq in training, logistics and intelligence for an undefined period.

      U.S. officials, however, have signaled willingness to compromise with Maliki’s government in order to sign an agreement by the end of President Bush’s term. There is additional pressure because the United Nations’ authorization for American troops to remain in Iraq expires at the end of the year; if no accord is signed before then, U.S. troops will have no legal basis to remain in the country.

      Speaking before a gathering of tribal leaders in the heavily fortified Green Zone, Maliki said for the first time that the United States had agreed to withdraw all troops — not just combat brigades — as part of a security accord governing U.S. forces in Iraq, and that the withdrawal schedule must be firm. But American officials said no accord had been reached and insisted that any withdrawal be based on conditions at the time.

      “The agreement says that the Iraqi government will decide if the security situation is good or bad and whether foreign troops remain in Iraq, not anyone else,” he said. “The Iraqi government could ask the Americans to withdraw before 2011 if we wish.”

      Too many Republicans are comfortable being the perennial losers — the second party that never wins but is necessary to create the illusion that we have a functioning democratic republic. The Senate is full of Republicans that are nothing more than foils for the radical Left.

      David Horowitz is making the single most important point in American politics by pointing out that the so-called opposition has yet to call Obama out in the middle of a Gramscian coup. Republicans are clearly far more concerned with defeating the Tea Party — the only reason 2010 was such a success for Republicans — than they are attacking Obama with the unvarnished truth.

Once they got people to ignore both the political scene and morals, we were doomed. Party, laugh, get high, watch TV, become avid sports nuts, get into the recreation craze, get hooked on celebrity lives or let some other preoccupation take total dominance in their lives and what is going on in the world or the government is on the back burner if it is even on the radar at all.

    America is no longer the keeper of International peace. The Golden Years,
    when America and Europe had Pres. Ronald Reagan, are alas all but forgotten!
    All we now have left is the Western Civilization which represents North-America,
    Europe, and a few other countries which are struggling to keep our civilization
    alive and safe from the Islamic Take-over.
    Your current pres. has now shown many times over, that he is no longer capable
    of functioning as leader of America. He has also been interfering in European
    Affairs. Which we do not need from Obama, who has never before shown much
    interest in Europe during the 8+ years of his presidency!
    I have written this before, and I will write this again: it’s your government that
    counts! FIRST you must have a capable, stable and devoted government,
    and from this group you can choose the leader. In Europe the winning political
    party is much more important than the man or woman who eventually is chosen
    as the country’s leader.
    Now is the time, more than ever before …. that you conservatives start working
    together in America, to build up your strength. If I am correct the start of the
    Republican party began with a wonderful caring statesman: Abraham Lincoln.
    Many other men and women followed. I loved the Reagan years and I still
    miss this wonderful dedicated cowboy very much!
    Come up American Republicans!…do you still have a few good dedicated
    folks who would like to work together with Europe to keep our
    Western Civilization going?

            I don’t think Sarah Palin has worked for several years
            just for the money! Many Americans think that she really
            does care about you. This is why she is coming up
            for your rights as citizens, and warning about the dangers
            which are rapidly increasing and worsening. Obama
            is fast becoming an International Problem. He is trying
            to become Europe’s new dictator! Would you rather have
            Ma Clinton to take his place? I would rather have an
            intelligent PATRIOT which America, and the rest of
            our Western Civilization now need more than ever before!

          • Sam197859

            To understand the game you have to learn the game. Sarah Palin is no different than a race pimp and a politician, as well as talk show pundits. It is always about money, power and position and not about you. Why do they say what they say?. To get listeners and viewers, which equal money. That is what they do. When someone uses language that is directed towards your fear and ignorance, you should be worried. They are NOT working for your best interest at all but to make money, gain power and to get in position to have maximum influence, over you, being on a major network.

    Why don’t the Republicans respond to this criminal behavior?
    They don’t because they are partners in crime in collusion with the Democrats.As one person said “Leftwing & Rightwing are different wings of the same bird”.The bird is known as the Welfare State.They go through the motions of pretending opposition to each other,it’s all theater to keep the public occupied.This is sort of like Fantasy Football for hard core fans,a game of pretend & what if. We can call it Fantasy Politics!
    P.S. All of this reminds me of some of the 1930′s gangster movies with George Raft or James Cagney. It goes like this;during the prohibition era of the 1920′s Raft or Cagney,who are gangsters,run a Speakeasy(Democrats).This illegal club is supplying it’s customers with prostitution,whiskey,drugs & gambling.Some simple soul(low info voter) wanders through this club & is aghast at what he sees
    in the speakeasy.Simple Simon runs to the Police Chief(Noah Berry Sr.?) & makes a complaint.He is assured by the Police Chief that a raid will be ordered & the illegal operation will be shut down!Now the Police chief & his officers(Republicans) have a tricky problem,the Chief is a silent partner in the club,he owns a 15% share of the joint!
    This could be a huge dilemma if not handled right.He has to placate Simple Simon & make him believe that he is on the job of protecting truth,justice,honor & the American Way!On the other hand he doesn’t want to shut down the speakeasy which has been very lucrative for him! The Chief decides to call for a delayed & token raid on the club.In this way he can warn his partners in crime to leave before the raid & come back later to resume business as usual.On the other hand he can show all of the rubes & yahoos that the law is being enforced & criminals will face justice!
    This ia approximately what happens in Washington.
    The Democrats run the Speakeasy,the Republicans are the police & they both take turns F….ing the public!

    • Richard Fontaine

      Excellent analogy.

    • DB1954

      In my view, Republicans should soon begin impeachment proceedings against Eric Holder. In fact, I think a resolution has been introduced to that effect a few weeks ago.The evidence against Holder is open, notorious, and so obvious that, unless Senate Democrats are willing–simultaneous to their verdict in Holder’s case– to tell the American people that 2 plus 2 equals something other than 4, they wouldn’t dare acquit Holder. The evidence would be staggering both in its size, scope, and clarity. Holder is the key.

      This sounds like an episode of The Untouchables with either Bruce Gordon or Nehemiah Persoff playing the gangster and James Gregory playing the corrupt police chief.

    If there ever comes a day of the People’s Retribution, something like a 1793 France, let us hope their wrath is first directed toward the GOP and that all the GOP geldings are strung up from the tallest trees and lamp posts before the show trials of the democrats.

    “How does one know that treason has triumphed? When none dare call it treason.”–Old adage.

  • semus

    The definition of feckless fits Obama on the surface anyway and he doesn’t mind projecting this. I would add arrogance to this description. What’s unsettling is, his actions or inaction’s seem purposeful and that doesn’t fit the feckless description. Oddly enough countries are falling like dominoes in the Middle East. Could Obama be a party to some vast scheme? Another words is he a Useful Idiot being used or is he an idiot being used? Who knows maybe both. It could be that defining him as feckless gives him too much cover or not enough credit depending on your point of view

    As far as the Republicans in most cases anyway it’s long past due when they should have spoken up. Could it all be all do to ineptitude and cowardice?

    • Americana

      The U.S. along w/the U.K. has long dreamed of a “better Middle East” that followed more demographically rational borders based on the demographics of religion and ethnic groups in each country and region. Because of all the human upheaval this American concept would cause to bring to fruition, it’s only been spoken about as a conceptual pipe dream. Now it seems the Arabs and other ethnic groups of the region are possibly executing this realignment on their own, somewhat by accident through the trauma of war and with an entirely different rationale for pursuing a “new Middle East.” Thus far, the new redrawing of the Middle East that’s being attempted only suits ONE demographic…

    Obama said in his book Audacity of Hope if the political winds shift in an ugly direction and we come into conflict with Muslims, he will stand with the Muslims.
    It just wasn’t clear he mean’t jihadi Muslims.

    • Americana

      That isn’t at all what Pres. Obama meant when he wrote he would “side w/the Muslims.” Obama was referring to the American preemptive action taken against the Japanese Americans during WW II because they suspected the Japanese were so fanatical, they’d have to worry about millions of Japanese-American Fifth Columnists. This also was thought to be true to a far more limited extent of German-Americans but for whatever reason only the Japanese-Americans had their property confiscated and virtually the entire Japanese=American community suffered incarceration until the conclusion of the war. Was it because there were so many German-American farmers producing so much food for the Allied and American cause or there were so many German-American industrial workers? For whatever reasons, the Japanese-Americans were the ones who suffered incarceration.

    “There is one foreign policy area where Republicans have shown some fight: Benghazi.”

    Mr Horowitz I really like your writing, your substantive ideas and your insights, but I do take issue with the above statement. The “Republicans” – which really means the establishment Republicans – Do not really have a fundamental disagreement with democRATs over Banghazi per se, it is just that Benghazi serves as a safe rallying cry for establishment Pubbies to wave in an effort to try and differentiate themselves from democRATs in the upcoming election. Or rather, it is a safe political tool-issue which establishment types hope can be used to obfuscate their own malfeasance and treachery in the both IRS scandal and the ongoing government coup via the demonRAT immigration illegalities.

    Any signs of “fight” from the establishment Republicans is, in my opinion, all smoke and mirrors designed to obfuscate, distract and deceive by any means necessary. The pious and “enlightened” Ruling Class power brokers are collaborating together to foist their much desired new pseudo-royalty status on the country to insure THEIR standing, power and wealth is never challenged, and that goes double for their idiot children. They do all of this under the rubric of an “enlightened” personal morality that serves their own personal, private sense of “ethics” above all else, and the media vassals of the Ruling Class are continuing to lay the groundwork for it and to reinforce already implemented supra-legal, fundamentally unconstitutional actions such as the IRS targeting of political enemies and the opening of the borders to illegals of all stripes for their own unbelievably selfish purposes.

    What is apparent is this: The Ruling Class cabal has decided that the existing middle class of the country is their only serious obstacle to absolute POWER, so they are going to gut that center of power by any means necessary while the media do their utmost to obfuscate that treachery and keep the little peeps in flyover country confused, demoralized and disorganized (Like the IRS targeting).

    The bottom line is, they will not stop until they are stopped by force. “Hoping” that one political party will stem this tide “because they have some fight left in them” is not only foolish, it ignores the fact that both political parties (like the media) are now simply extensions of the Ruling Class Pseudo-Royalty that own them, and the political operatives in those parties are merely obedient talking heads doing and saying as they’re told.

    • Americana

      “Benghazi” is NOT a “foreign policy area.” That is ONE EVENT **in the area of foreign policy** that is the result of an American military policy choice that was made long ago under Sec. of Defense Donald Rumsfeld and which we’re still pursuing. It’s a very practical concept but Benghazi proved that it can fail in the most tragic fashion. The Joint Chiefs insisted that the Middle East realign its Rapid Deployment Forces and those were revised to have additional RDF placed on all ships containing Marine Expeditionary Forces as well as a Rapid Deployment Force being placed at Sigonella Air Base in Italy.

      Rapid Deployment Forces are our FIRST and LAST line of defense for our American outposts, whether they be military or diplomatic. Not one Republican brought up our reliance on Rapid Deployment Forces. Not one Republican believed that the deaths occurred within an HOUR and a HALF of the initial assault on the Benghazi consular compound. Republicans are persisting in asking the most inane questions about Benghazi. It’s almost as if they reprise the original Benghazi inquest again and again and again.

    • Americana

      Let’s expose the realities of Benghazi. The U.S. Armed Forces underwent a complex retrenchment and redeployment under Sec. of Defense Donald Rumsfeld that emphasized a Rapid Deployment security posture rather than a base-heavy deployment in force. This decision ended up w/the Middle East’s military and diplomatic personnel relying on Rapid Deployment Forces as their EMERGENCY RELIEF FORCES. Everything seemed to work fine w/this rapid deployment concept until the Benghazi debacle which took the lives of Ambassador Stevens and Information Officer Sean Smith within an hour and a half of the initial attack on the American consular compound. But obviously there were holes in the deployment which were rectified by a new deployment of Rapid Response Forces to each ship hosting a Marine Expeditionary Force as well as a SEAL Rapid Response Force being stationed at Signonella Air Base.
      __________________________________________________________________

      http://www.factcheck.org/2012/10/benghazi-timeline/

      Here is our timeline:

      Analysis

      Sept. 11: The Attack

      2:30 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time (8:30 p.m. Benghazi time): U.S. Ambassador to Libya Chris Stevens steps outside the consulate to say goodbye to a Turkish diplomat. There are no protesters at this time. (“Everything is calm at 8:30,” a State Department official would later say at an Oct. 9 background briefing for reporters. “There’s nothing unusual. There has been nothing unusual during the day at all outside.”)

      3 p.m.: Ambassador Stevens retires to his bedroom for the evening. (See Oct. 9 briefing.)

      Approximately 3:40 p.m. A security agent at the Benghazi compound hears “loud noises” coming from the front gate and “gunfire and an explosion.” A senior State Department official at the Oct. 9 briefing says that “the camera on the main gate reveals a large number of people – a large number of men, armed men, flowing into the compound.”

      About 4 p.m.: This is the approximate time of attack that was given to reporters at a Sept. 12 State Department background briefing. An administration official identified only as “senior administration official one” provides an official timeline of events at the consulate, but only from the time of the attack — not prior to the attack. The official says, “The compound where our office is in Benghazi began taking fire from unidentified Libyan extremists.” (Six of the next seven entries in this timeline — through 8:30 p.m. EDT — all come from the Sept. 12 briefing. The exception being the 6:07 p.m. entry, which comes from Reuters.)

      About 4:15 p.m.: “The attackers gained access to the compound and began firing into the main building, setting it on fire. The Libyan guard force and our mission security personnel responded. At that time, there were three people inside the building: Ambassador Stevens, one of our regional security officers, and Information Management Officer Sean Smith.”

      Between 4:15 p.m.-4:45 p.m.: Sean Smith is found dead.

      About 4:45 p.m.: “U.S. security personnel assigned to the mission annex tried to regain the main building, but that group also took heavy fire and had to return to the mission annex.”

      About 5:20 p.m.: “U.S. and Libyan security personnel … regain the main building and they were able to secure it.”

      Around 6 p.m.: “The mission annex then came under fire itself at around 6 o’clock in the evening our time, and that continued for about two hours. It was during that time that two additional U.S. personnel were killed and two more were wounded during that ongoing attack.”

      6:07 p.m.: The State Department’s Operations Center sends an email to the White House, Pentagon, FBI and other government agencies that said Ansar al-Sharia has claimed credit for the attack on its Facebook and Twitter accounts. (The existence of the email was not disclosed until Reuters reported it on Oct. 24.)

      About 8:30 p.m.: “Libyan security forces were able to assist us in regaining control of the situation. At some point in all of this – and frankly, we do not know when – we believe that Ambassador Stevens got out of the building and was taken to a hospital in Benghazi. We do not have any information what his condition was at that time. His body was later returned to U.S. personnel at the Benghazi airport.”

      About 10:00 p.m.: Secretary of State Hillary Clinton issues a statement confirming that one State official was killed in an attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi. Her statement, which MSNBC posted at 10:32 p.m., made reference to the anti-Muslim video.

    This is the question I have wanted answered since 2008. When will someone in Congress admit that this man isn’t normal? When is someone going to admit that Obama is a Marxist? Frankly, I don’t see how in blazes people like Senator Bill Nelson (Dem. FL) could have ever NOT known that Barack Obama is a Marxist ideologue. How could he have NOT known? Did he never once consult blogs or books that have set out in detail this man’s history?

    There are probably now dozens of books written about Barack Obama and his life before he ran for President. They can’t ALL be lying. When is someone going to break and say, he’s a Marxist?

    The Republicans need to STOP FUNDING the corruption. The only power they have is of the purse. The last best chance we had was Ted Cruz begging to defund Obamacare. That would have worked and stopped a lot of this cold in it’s tracks. I pray for the day this nightmare regime will end..I hope it’s sooner than later.

        DemonRAT Leftist morons like Sam197859 typify the man, organic problem of the inverted “liberals”: atrophied amygdalas (the “vigilance” center of the brain). I am convinced that this organically and genetically* brain deficit accounts for the evil-inclined “liberals” and “progressives”, and their vile, narcissistic, and criminal actions and behavior. The amygdalas of their brains are shrunken and genetically atrophied. There is also probably chronic, multigenerational a drug- and substance- abuse element at work here, too. This must be why, to them, any kind of response to any real threat on the part of sane, rational, healthy Americans is “paranoia” (or “racism”). Americans’ response to 9/11/2001? “Paranoia”, say these inbred, brain-defective communist, inverted reality, drug-damaged freaks.

        This is the only explanation. “Liberals”, “Progressives” and DemonRATs all have atrophied, deficient amygdalas.

      In your benighted mind, you mendaciously refuse to admit that Israel’s strongest, most steadfast supporters are — surprise! — Evangelical Christians, far more so than American Democrat Reform Jews, in fact. Israel’s bitterest and most dangerous enemies here are the antisemites who infest the present-day American Left and its vehicle in subversion, the Damnocrat Party–especially the one who sits in the Oval Office when he can take time off from golf and fundraisers.

      Put that in your pipe and smoke it, instead of whatever you’re smoking now.

    • dotherightthing4

      You are insane! As a Christian, I have and would NEVER try to convert a Jew. As a Christian, it is my duty to protect and support the Jewish people because they are God’s chosen people. End of story. Anything else you have fabricated in your mind.

      • Americana

        Well, there are PLENTY of evangelical Christian groups who are trying to convert everyone who isn’t Christian. The groups in the Holy Land especially seem to be guilty of proselytization of one and all. I drove 5 hours home from a training session a week ago and there was an evangelical radio show on about the latest violence between Israel and the Palestinians. That’s all those American evangelicals who were interviewed were talking about is converting Muslims and Jews from Gaza and Jerusalem.

        • dotherightthing4

          I have never heard that–ever. Missionaries go to spread the gospel but it is certainly not forced under duress.

            I see no harm in that–the harm is in radicals like the Jihadists who will slit your throat after demanding you convert, live as a dhimmi or die. Better to keep our eye on the ball.
            BTW–saw your comment above regarding diseases coming in from across the border/screenings. There was a video of a border patrol agent stating this was absolutely NOT happening. People were being shunted through with zero screening. And that makes sense—how are you possibly going to screen the 300,000 people that have come through the detention centers since April and that does not even account for the ones that have slipped through undetected.

We need to recognize that Obama’s policies and incompetence are not just ruining people’s lives in the US because he has killed the American Dream, but that he is literally and directly responsible for the deaths of untold thousands in many countries, deaths which are ongoing, occurring every day and will continue until his tragic and destructive regime ends.

    His “base” cares little that he is responsible for so many deaths and so much misery, but if a Republican President did exactly the same thing he would be excoriated like a diabolical demon by his leftist base.

    • Sam197859

      The republicans did. It is called the Iraqi and Afghanistan wars. How did the president “kill” the American dream? Trying to make getting an education affordable and retraining is killing the American Dream? Your arguments are just plain stupid and void of a actual common sensible thought. Neocons, continue to prove that a thought is a mental disorder.

        So tell me your thoughts about the thousands of people who are being and will be killed because of Obama’s incompetence and indifference. Forget the ‘American Dream’ for a moment. Speak to me about the genocide which Obama has unleashed or refuses to stop. Try to think for a change instead of repeating useless and mindless liberal and progressive talking points.

    “Where is the Republican opposition? Why are Republicans still treating
    Obama as though his were a normal presidency and not a national
    disgrace? Why are there no indictments of Obama for the carnage he has
    enabled?”

    Questions I have been asking myself since 2009 without any satisfactory answer. It makes me wonder if the rise of an Adolph Hitler in this country would raise any sense of alarm in the Republican Party. It makes me wonder if there are not more similarities and fewer differences between the Republicans and Democrats than we have assumed. It makes me wonder if both parties are not complicit in moving us from a constitutional republic to a tyrannical dictatorship.

    • WhiteHunter

      Republicans are needlessly terrified of being slandered as “racists”–the all-purpose bludgeon Obama and his side use against anyone who in any way finds fault with or objects to literally anything Obama does or even says.

      Since disagreeing with Obama–or pointing out his crimes and lies, and wanting to stop and punish them–is in no way “racist,” but rather an act of patriotic courage, his opponents in the GOP should start treating the “racism” smear with the sneering contempt it deserves, and stop trying to protest and muster arguments and prove that they’re not “racists,” because that’s allowing the Damnocrat to define the terms and even the vocabulary of debate and puts the regime’s critics on the defensive–which is a guaranteed no-win situation.

      How about, “No, it’s NOT racist to want to stop Obama from destroying the Constitution and the country. It’s NOT racist to want a strong, prosperous economy that provides a secure life for all Americans. It’s NOT racist to want to protect our own population from epidemic diseases brought here from the Third World under Obama’s open-borders-and-amnesty-for-all policies. It’s NOT racist to want our country to be respected around the globe–trusted by our friends and feared by our enemies, as we once were. But of course, President Obama and my distinguished colleagues on the other side of the aisle will disagree with all of that, because dividing and polarizing our people, weakening our economy and tunneling under our national security, and betraying our longtime allies are what they’re all about.”

      • Americana

        The one thing I would say about the open borders and diseases issue is that we have one of the highest percentage populations in the world for international travelers. American vacationers and business people can bring back diseases the same way they’re brought by illegal and legal immigrants. The one thing that may not be true about vacationing Americans returning w/diseases is that the diseases have not yet reached the chronic point. But we are potentially liable to not be aware we’re bringing these diseases back as latent illnesses since we’re often there for such short periods of time we may still find we’re incubating something. I thought all legal immigrants were still obliged to pass a health screening though, is that no longer true? One thing we do not want is for immigrants to bring diseases in like the drug-resistant forms of TB.

          The good ole illegals and citizens are the same argument.

          “American vacationers and business people can bring back diseases the same way they’re brought by illegal and legal immigrants.”

          Illegals get DUIs and citizens get DUIs. Citizens commit homicides and illegals commit homicides.

          Then there is the argument that the illegals commit DUIs at the same rate at citizens SO WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES IT MAKES ANYWAY.

          So once we argue that the rates are higher or we do not need the additional deaths or whatever, Americana will have MOVED ON.

          Only to return at a later date starting from square one.

            Lordy, Pete, so now I’m being fingered as someone whose job it is to “sway opinion?” What’s your job here then? This is called sharing thinking and thinking out loud as far as I’m concerned. If you don’t like my thinking, you’re welcome to rebut my thinking by your VERY OWN THOUGHTS. If your thoughts and supporting facts are more convincing than my thoughts and supporting facts and you’ve got a better grasp of the subject, people may turn toward your opinion. Trying to pretend that all political philosophies should remain isolated from each other is no way to build consensus or develop a deeper understanding of another’s viewpoint.

          I never “pretend to be” anything. I’m a rather rich mix of political concepts and I don’t consider myself limited to one political philosophy. You may claim I’m “pro-Obama,” though I’m pro-Obama in the sense I think it’s idiotic to slander the man because he’s of two ethnic groups and because of some of the political actions he’s taken. I’m not “pro-illegals,” but American farmers have grown dependent on them in certain farming sectors. Of course, you, in all your grandiose claims of being from a farming family then mistakenly made the false claim that farmers should just “switch to other crops” if they didn’t have the manpower to pick soft fruits and veggies like peppers and raspberries, etc., etc. You also made the hilarious claim that illegal aliens would be redundant “in 20 or 30 years when all the picking has been automated.” As if that SOLVES the issue of what American farmers will do in the MEANTIME for the harvesting of their soft-bodied fruit and vegetable crops.

          • Pete

            Because of a fraction (fruit farmers and similar) of less than 2% of the population (farmer) you want to hold the other 98% of the population hostage.

            That is really brilliant thinking there SWIFT!

            It is amazing. the thread is 2 days old and I am getting votes, which gives me hope.

            You on the other hand are beyond hope.

            I don’t write my posts to be popular. I have several times said I am for amnesty after we get a decent border fence. The one which Janet Napolitano gave up on. For failing to build a fence that congress appropriated money for TPTB gave her a sweet heart job at an University. Jewish Conservative talk show host Michael Medved is also for amnesty. Still being for amnesty will get a person scolded her. my point is I don’t march in lock step with everyone.

            On the other hand we have American that just goes out of her way to take a contrary position on everything. A person really has to try to get a 25% rating. Congrats, American you did that! Is it worth the 30 pieces honey? Did they teach you that in women’s studies?

    “This was surely the most shameful individual act by a president in the history of the White House.”

    He has two years left to commit an even more ‘shameful’ act. My money says that he will. Vacations and Fund Raisers have been, and will remain, his primary priorities. Anyone who doesn’t realize this by now needs to stop using the drugs they’ve been taking for the past 6 years.

    The Republican Party has really become a let-down insofar as presenting an opposition platform to the American people that is as unabashedly forceful and unrelenting in character as the Democrats’. In retrospect I think that Ronald Reagan provided the Republicans with a temporary infusion of bone marrow which unfortunately was subsequently diluted by GHW Bush’s “kinder, gentler” donation and to an even greater extent contraindicated by the whole “one world order” spiel. Whatever it was, the Republican Party just seemed to lose form and backslide into the sludge at the bottom of the ladder, unable or afraid to distinguish themselves from the opposition. (Does this observation have any merit?)

    I sincerely hope everyone understands Obama.s unwavering support of the Muslim’s is due to the fact they are his brothers, and he is one of them! He has admitted this so why are our politicians avoiding the issue? and acting stupid?

  • slhancock

    I have written several times to all my elected reps and senators. I’ve asked that they support impeachment giving numerous examples of Obama’s treachery. NOT ONE ANSWER so far. They don’t want to be labeled as the republican that impeached a black democrat. I guess that says they don’t give s%&$ about the rest of us, so what can we expect?

    • Americana

      If any Republican legislator can prove that Pres. Obama has committed treason or impeachable offenses, he’s obligated to come forward w/the information. The fact is, no one has been able to come forward w/anything REMOTELY APPROACHING TREASON or IMPEACHABLE OFFENSES. Making these highly inflammatory claims is good political theatre but, when the claims are EMBELLISHED w/LIES or SIMPLY ARE LIES, they nullify the impeachment claims. As for being the Republican legislator to level treason charges against the first black President, that’s also reasonable if the first black President has committed impeachable offenses. If that black President hasn’t committed impeachment-worthy offenses then you’re leveling treason charges at him simply for the value of smearing his name and his administration.

    • Steve Bryant

      That’s because the American public is so dumbed down that they will oppose efforts to save their own hide. PC restraints destroyed our education system, prevents dealing with the real issues of racism and are in the process of destroying our military. The military’s ability to perform has already been destroyed, but that’s separate from issues such as lowering quality levels so women can be treated “fair” and mandating ROE that essentially turn our fighting forces into targets.
      But not to worry, everything has a beginning…….and end. Including this once shinning city on a hill.

    “Where is the Republican opposition?” – They are not an opposition: At least since the sham of impeachment for the “stained dress” perjury of an intern, if not earlier. America has fallen so low, that America has no opposition (except http://JudeoChristianAmerica.org)

    “Why are Republicans still treating Obama as though his were a normal presidency and not a national disgrace?” – Because since 2002 representatives of “both parties” 8 times attempted to pass a bill in order to rid of the Natural Born requirement – i.e. paving the way for Obama (then not yet even known to anybody).

    “When will Republicans gather the courage to start speaking truth to power?” – Never, because they are in cahoots with the power.

    When you, Mr. Horowitz, will gather the courage to start speaking truth to your readers: You, a liar you?! You, who lied and obfuscated the truth since 2008?

They clearly demonstrate the journalistic malpractice, being in cahoots with the ruling elite and the very de-facto one-party system which Mr. Horowitz seems to criticize here.

    Obama not only betrayed every American, by Iraq, he enjoyed doing it. By the largest, or by smallest measures; this is his pleasure. Obama, Inc. Is an enemy of every American citizen, past, present and future. . .and it is beyond sickening, watching Repub ‘Leadership’, make pretense otherwise. Could not believe that we heard again, just last week, that treasonous Obama, is otherwise, a ‘nice guy’. This is nothing but a gutless PR mantra, that must be laid to rest. No Repub should even think to go there.

    It may take some time, but these ‘see no evil’ Repubs, will pay for their bad eyesight, and their ‘sounds of silence’. Meantime, we must move forward, speak the truth and win….Truth is our last hope; and best offense.

    Meantime, our Constituency like ‘thirsty dogs’ out here waiting for that ‘Truth to Power’ surge. We are losing Elections, as we wait. We have already paid dearly, for their ‘sounds of silence’.
